Top General Calls Homosexuality ‘Immoral’: Gay Advocacy Group Blasts Comment as ‘Outrageous’
WASHINGTON (March 13) – Senior aides to the chairman of the military Joint Chiefs of Staff said Tuesday that Marine Gen. Peter Pace won’t apologize for calling homosexuality immoral — an opinion that gay advocacy groups deplored.
In a newspaper interview Monday, Pace had likened homosexual acts to adultery and said the military should not condone it by allowing gays to serve openly in the armed forces.
